— NATURE DRIVES —

Our knowledgeable guieds would love to show you around the farm so why not book a drive, either early in the morning, or in the late afternoon. A variety of antelope, birds and even a giraffe or two can be spotted, while the natural vegetation is fascinating: centuries old ghwarrie trees; ancient “waboom” proteas; a spekboom forest and over 3000 indigenous succulent plant species.

Note the ruins of shepherd huts dotted in the veld. Spare a thought for these isolated folk of yesteryear who tended their sheep in blistering heat and torrential rain with not much in the way of food and home comforts, with perhaps weekly rations of bread, coffee and a little sugar.
